... (e .g ., Nos. 49-50 and 647). Nos. 58-60 and 75-78 show deep, angular cutting, whereas the work on Nos. 63 and 64 is shallow and summary. Animal figures appear frequently (e .g ., on Nos. 50-52, 60, 63, and 647), often rampant and crossed. Such animal groups, sometimes combined with human figures, are often so interlocked as to form an endless frieze. Toward the end of the period struggles between heroes and animals form the dominant note, and the compositions become more and more stereotyped. [4 ] See Bibliography [5 ] Cf. Henri Frankfort, Archeology and the ...

... in the Historia Mahtralis, and, according to the usual rendering, mentioned seventy-twos asterisms with 1600 stars; but this, if the original be correctly understood, could have been only by separately counting parts of the old figures, for nowhere does he allude to any that are new, unless it be his Thronos Caesaris, probably the Southern Cross. Ptolemy scientifically followed with those now known as the ancient forty-eight, in the 7th and 8th books of the Syntaxis, twelve of the zodiac with twenty-one northern and fifteen southern, made up by 1028 stars, including 102, all probably from Hipparchos, although with some acknowledged alterations by himself; for in the 5th chapter of his ...

... 3 ) . 4. Is held by the four-handed Devi (Plate 43). Here is a tracing from Nineveh anid Babylon' of the central wheel and seven stars found at Bavian, in company of the winged sphere and other symbols, overhead the figure of an Assyrian Monarch. Sir H. Layard called the wheel " a Maltese cross (? syiilbolical of- the sun)," and it no doubt gives us an origin for the symbol vulgarly known by that name since its adoption by the Knights of ®000 000 # St. John of Jerusalem, afterwards of Rhodes, and finally of Malta. They must have adopted it in Malta, for their Rhodian ...

... state in which they appear in our gardens ? Is it not the same in regard to a great quantity of animals which domesticity has changed or considerably modified ?" * Our domestic fowls and pigeons are unlike any wild birds. Our domestic ducks and geese have lost the faculty of raising themselves into the higher regions of the air, and crossing extensive countries in their flight, like the wild ducks and wild geese from which they were originally derived. A bird which we breed in a cage cannot, when restored to liberty, fly like others of the same species which have been always free. This small alteration of circumstances, however, has only diminished the power of flight ...

... or He of the Mat, and the term was synonymous with ahau, or lord, itself." [45] Pop is also the first month of the Maya Haab 365-day calendar. What do the following five examples of the glyph for the month Pop remind you of? Pop is clearly composed of two main elements, the K'an cross, an image that goes back to Olmec times, and a twisted pair of mat reeds. The arms of the cross come together in a rounded angle, not a straight 90 degrees. This roundness and the dot in the middle suggests that this is another Saturn sun symbol as it is similar to the four-petalled K'in signs of the ...

... during the Former Han Dynasty (205 B.C . -23 A.D .) suggests that Chinese astronomers then believed that the planet Venus could deviate from its expected position in the sky and that it had already done so in earlier centuries of their ancient history. The principle says: "When Venus appears, it does not cross the sky. When [it] crosses the sky, the country changes its government. " A commentator on this text, Meng K'ang, explains that Venus can cross the sky either from the eastern to western horizon or from western to eastern horizon. And, Meng K'ang adds, these crossings are rare, occurring only every few ...
